NetComposites will be showcasing 2 new major product areas at the JEC show, in addition to its usual wide range of books, media services and consultancy work.
For the first time NetComposites will be showing some of the results of its applied development activities in innovative applied composite technologies, the highlight of which is a range of polypropylene-fibre reinforced polypropylene (self-reinforced composite) prototype and demonstrator components. This is the first time that the company will be publicly showing the results of the last 2-years of development in this technology area, and the range of components on display will ably illustrate its ability to cost-effectively shape, bond and paint this family of materials into highly competitive components. Initial applications are expected to be in the automotive, construction, personnel protection and sporting goods sectors.
The company will also have a range of novel composites gifts and products for the composites professional or enthusiast, such as carbon-fibre pens, business card cases, coasters, wallets, jewellery, lighters, cufflinks, key rings and furniture. This new range of products complements NetComposites world-leading bookshop, and a broad selection of books and products will be available to view and buy at the NetComposites stand.
